Sklarna Chřibská (Czechoslovakia) Tall 11" Art Glass Vase/Centrepiece | Designed by Josef Hospodka

$285.00 USD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

Founded in 1414, Sklarna Chribská is one of the oldest and longest-running glassworks in the (now) Czech Republic. From the mid-1950s onwards, its production was revolutionised by a youthful Josef Hospodka's 'off-hand' designs formed entirely at the furnace.

The company reacted against traditional Bohemian cut designs, and reflected fashionable design developments on Murano and in Scandinavia in terms of their organic, bua-like forms, vibrant colours, and cased forms.
